Over 2.30 crore children to get vitamin A+ capsule

Staff Reporter:

The Vitamin A plus campaign began across the country on Tuesday, aiming to feed vitamin A plus cap-sules to more than 2.30 crore children aged between six to 59 months.
The capsules will be given at all EPI vaccination centers, community clinics and other healthcare centers of the country from 8 am to 4 pm from Tuesday till Friday.
Blue colored vitamin A capsules will be given to some 27 lakh children aged between 6 and 11 months, while the red colored ones will be given to the rest of the children aged from 11 to 59 months.
Health Minister Zahid Maleque inaugurated the campaign at a discussion session held at the NIPSOM auditorium at Mohakhali in Dhaka.
The meeting was presided over by the Secretary of the Health Services Division Jahangir Alam.
Highlighting the significance of Vitamin-A Plus capsules, the health minister said these are safe and have immense benefits.
These capsules not only combat vitamin deficiency but also contribute to eye health, immune system strengthening, and overall growth. The campaign is crucial in reducing child mortality by 24%, particu-larly from diseases like diarrhoea, pneumonia, and anemia, he said.
The minister also urged parents to ensure their children consume the capsules responsibly.
